Respirator

Respirators used for medical purposes assist patients in breathing and are used on air ambulance transfers as well. These are more commonly referred to as ventilators and are accompanied by a respiratory therapist.

A respiratory therapist is certified to treat and care for patients who are on a ventilator. A patient who needs this kind of care will be accompanied on an air ambulance by both a flight nurse and/or paramedic along with a respiratory therapist onboard.
